Essex County debates IQS contract

Essex County must decide whether to void a contract that the County Ethics Board ruled was improperly awarded.

County Attorney Daniel Manning III said Monday he’s still reviewing whether the $76,800-a-year contract with Info Quick Solutions of Liverpool should be canceled because the County Clerk’s Office improperly influenced the bid process to favor it.

The firm provides document-scanning equipment and software for the Clerk’s Office, which records real-estate transactions and other legal documents.

Manning said the County Ethics Law says improperly awarded contracts may be canceled and rebid. POST
